Last Chapter! I apologyze, because this isn't neccesarily very Christmas/Lurlinemas-y. But there's still some Fiyeraba!
She felt the wind in her hair as she sat on the broom miles above Oz. She looked down, toward Shiz University, where she knew Fiyero was. He had planned to break up with Galinda- Glinda, now- right after the girls got back from meeting the Wizard.
Suspose that's not happening now.
She felt unbelievably alone. She was a little speck on the horizon, a little green fleck. What was she doing, going up against the Wizard of Oz? Was she crazy or just stupid? Some silly, hopeful part of her had really thought Glinda would join her. Really, that would've done more harm than good. Elphaba never would accompish anything if she had to worry about her best friend getting in trouble.
But then again, who said she would accomplish anything, anyway? She would probably die, sooner rather than later, and no one would even care.
That's not true, A little, perky, positive voice said. The voice reminded her of Glinda, actually. That's not true. People care about you. Right now, people are worried sick about you!
Sure, sure, she said to herself, Father is embaressed. Nessa wants to disown me. Glinda is worried, but she knows what happened. Three people, two of which only care because I am related to them.
No, stupid! The perky voice said, HE cares about you.
Fiyero, you idiot! Fiyero loves you! Fiyero is worried sick about you right now, because he loves you!
Oh.. oh yeah
She smiled despite herself, and touched the necklace she had concealed by her high-necked dress. She thought of his words. "Relax, Elphie. I'll take care of things,"
Sure, he'd been talking about his relationship with his girlfriend, but it was nice to think his words also applied to all other obstacles in her path.
She thought of the little green emerald surrounded by blue saphires... guarded by the saphires. Recklessly, she flew the broom toward the North, toward Shiz. It was very, very late. The school was silent and still. She easily found his dorm room.
She looked in the window, watching him sleep fitfully. His brow was creased, as if he couldn't rest even in sleep. She pressed her hand against the glass of the window, feeling it warm against her palm. He stirred then, as if he sensed her. She panicked, and froze, knowing she should run.
But he was awake, and he looked around his room, as if searching for something or someone... then his gaze led to the window, where she levitated, her palm still on the cold glass. He slowly got up and walked to his window. He longed to open it, and pull her in, but knew that that would cause more harm than good. She needed to hide, and he could not safely hide her in his dorm.
Instead, he pressed his own hand to the glass, feeling her heat against it.
"I love you," she mouthed to him.
"I know," he whispered.
She disapeared then. He couldn't help but smile to see her high above the buildings and the frozen snow. She looked like a Lurlinemas Angel.
